Daniel Bryan talks about finishers in pro wrestling

Reyan Ali of The Classical is featuring an interview with WWE star Daniel Bryan who talks about his favorite and least favorite finishers in pro wrestling.

Bryan added, “I still think the Superkick is the best finisher ever. It was just so good. There’s so many [favorites]. I think Antonio Cesaro’s finish right now is cool. I always loved the Piledriver, so an adaptation of the Piledriver is very awesome to me. I’ve always loved submission holds, so I love the Sharpshooter, that sort of thing. I love Dean Malenko’s Cloverleaf. The things that I never really liked as finishers were the stuff that was wacky, stuff like the Von Erichs [who] did the Tornado Punch, you know what I mean? [Laughs] The Ultimate Warrior—even though he was my favorite as a kid—[had] the Press Slam, and then he’d hit the ropes a couple of times and give ’em the Big Splash, the Hulk Hogan Legdrop—stuff like that was all stuff [where] I was just like, ‘Eh.’ To be fair, I honestly always hated the Rock Bottom. To me, it was just like, ‘Uh, that’s weird and stupid.'”

Newsday talks with Mick Foley supporting Daniel Bryan

Josh Stewart of Newsday is featuring an interview with WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley talking about his long rant against WWE for not including Daniel Bryan in the Royal Rumble match. Foley joked that he wanted to put a brick through his TV.

Foley added, “But technically, I did break a TV in protest — even if my swing lacked a follow-through, a habit developed through hitting thousands of fly balls to my son in our backyard — where a follow-through would have meant pulling the ball to left, into the neighbor’s yard.”
